New Rule: Don’t develop with Fingerprint Reader!

Who would have thought developers fingers could cause crashes?

I was working with my VS 2008 ASP.Net application and added some javascript to my default.aspx page when I started to get TypeLibBuilder crashes. WTF? Maybe it was my code — maybe there was something going on in VS 2008 that I was missing. I shrugged and continued – because after all, when you get weird Windows crashes and you’re working on a project, you do the obvious: restart your machine, pray to the Seattle gods and continue on your way.

Then I searched for it –

Big Problem Solved – No More TypeLibBuilder.exe Crashes!

Whoa! Killed DpAgent.exe in my Task Manager and no more errors.

Apparently my new MS Fingerprint Reader doesn’t like JavaScript! Who knew?
